Hi,

I'm able to edit the item right now, so i'm going to assume there was something up with the server your item lives on over the weekend. Please try again, and post here if you're still having problems. Thanks!

Alexis

Perhaps change the security settings in your browser for this website. Maybe it blocks *.php pages?

Huh. I can't do it either, now - problem writing to the DB maybe? So I'm going to ask one of the engineers to take a look at it.

Hi,

Okay, the problem should be fixed.

Turns out a couple of your song titles were really long - probably from an accented/special character interpretation problem (replicated nonprintable character like 1000+ times).

When you go back into your item, you'll want to check/update the "title" boxes for your songs. This FAQ about using accented or special characters might be helpful: http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#261

Thanks,

Alexis

alright thanks a lot, i didnt know how to use the special characters. i had already gotten rid of them from the song titles but i guess they were still in the system derived files. anyway, problem solved, thanks
